Pete V. Domenici United States Courthouse
This seven-story federal courthouse in downtown Albuquerque, named in honor of Sen. Pete Domenici, is set on a 4.5-acre site. The $43 million project is 254,000 square feet.
Summit provided the electrical distribution system that supports all the other systems the courthouse required, including security and communications.
Fort Bliss Combat Aviation Brigade Hangars
El Paso, TX
The Fort Bliss Army Base is the country’s largest military base encompassing 1.1 million acres. The base required five new aviation hangars totaling 550,000 square feet to house and maintain Chinook, Black Hawk and Apache helicopters. Summit provided all of the switch gear for the electrical systems during this three-year project.
Subsidiary Summit Industries provided custom metal fabrication of control panels. All of the hangars are expected to obtain LEED Silver certification.
Fort Bliss Company Operations Facilities
El Paso, TX
Summit also provided switch gear for 12 buildings constructed as company operations facilities at the Army Base. Summit was able to meet this design-build project’s fast-tracked delivery schedule, with all equipment, switch gear, and transformers for electrical distributions systems for each of the dozen buildings on site between October 2009 and January 2010.
Ridges Basin Dam/Pumping Plant
Summit was a major supplier of electrical equipment on this Bureau of Reclamation project that pumps water from the Animas River into a storage lake 700 feet above the river. The dam and pumping plant are connected by a 750-foot-long tunnel.
Summit supplied switch gear, site lighting and cable for dam, pumping plant and connection tunnel.
Central Avenue Bridge Lighting
A programmable, energy efficient, LED lighting system served twin city goals of improving safety and sprucing up a historic downtown bridge. The lighting can be changed, including to holiday theme colors (red and green in December, for example), turning the bridge into an eye-catching display of color while illuminating the dark underpassage.
Summit provided the entire energy-efficient lighting system.
